Cheese Whiz Sausage Balls

Everyone has had a sausage ball at some time or another-I hope so anyways, if you haven't you are missing out let me tell ya! I am addicted to these! On Sunday we went to the craft show and came home and hubs was watching football so I decided to make some appetizers. One of these appetizers were indeed the sausage balls! I go into the kitchen to start making them and look into the pantry, no Bisquick.

Houston, we have a problem.

No Bisquick=No sausage balls

No sausage balls=Me not happy

I'm sure there is some way around it but I didn't want to try to figure it out so I hopped my butt into the car and went down to the store to get some Bisquick. And only Bisquick! I ended up spending $20 on more than what I went in for! Dang it, EVERYTIME! I got home and finally I can start these! Not so fast turbo-I didn't have enough shredded cheese for the sausage balls and buffalo chicken quesadillas (I'll post this recipe sometime soon! You'll likey likey!). There was no way I was going back to the store and spending another $20. And then there it was-Cheese Whiz, starring at me. Could I actually maybe pull this off? I was a little nervous to because I was thinking it would turn out to be an ooey gooey mess, but since I was the ornery side that day, I figured what the heck, whats another mess to pick up? So I went at it! And here is how I did it---

1 lb pork sausage
8 ounces Cheese Whiz
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 tbs "Tony" creole seasoning
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tbs Louisiana hot sauce (for a little more kick, you could leave this out if ya want too!)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all your ingredients together in a big bowl (its almost easier just to use your hands to mix it all up) and roll up into little 1 inch or so balls. Mine were all uneven! Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the bottom is a golden brownish color. (Also while your first batch is cooking put your bowl into the fridge so its not as sticky when you go to roll up the rest). They almost look more like little biscuits instead of balls, but they are


This is probably the only way I will ever make these from now on! They did not turn out to be an ooey gooey mess, they were prefection! Hubs loved them, he was a little skeptical when I told him what I was doing at first, but I won him over, and that's why he loves me! Always making his tummy happy! I even dipped them into some ranch! Ok it was fat free ranch, alright!!! I had to dip them!

So if you want a different way of making sausage balls, you have got to make these! I think ya'll will love love love them!

  11. Hi,

    Those cheese sausage balls look real yum...Love 'em..Visit me when time permits...:)


  12. Kirby, you make me laugh. A lot. And empathize, as I too never seem to go to the store and get ONLY what's on my list. My worst was going for a block of cheese (or something similar) and coming out spending $100. Whoops. These cheese whiz sausage balls look fantastic and drool worthy and calorically glorifying. Is calorically a word? I don't know. (sorry for the Friday morning digressions) Thanks for linking up to Friday Potluck this week!

  13. wow, i love cheese whiz, and this looks so delicious. happy weekend! :)

  14. Looks like your ingenuity really paid off. These sausage balls look delicious and I bet the Cheese Whiz adds a great flavor to them.
